The story of George Washington and the cherry tree has long been used to teach children the value of honesty when we’ve done something wrong. But sometimes adults forget that lesson. We try to hide our “cherry trees,” rather than confess that we’ve sinned. The Bible teaches clearly that we are to confess our sins, so that we may be forgiven.
At the heart of Paul’s letter to the Ephesians is a discussion of the church, the bride of Christ. In the letter we learn many things about God’s plan for the church, how the church came into being, who is in the church, and how the church should act. We are going to look at all of this things and more going forward in our study of Ephesians. In this lesson, we get an overview of the book and the people involved in its writing.
